2011-06-01 Diego Zamboni <diego@zzamboni.org>
* Version 2.8.1
* Bug fix release, there was a bug in the handling of page-region
capture that was leading to capturing the full page under
certain circumstances.
2011-06-01 Diego Zamboni <diego@zzamboni.org>
* Version 2.8
* Fixed several modules whose pages had changed.
* Modified comics.com template to now be the same as gocomics.com,
since both sites have merged:
http://blogs.gocomics.com/2011/05/gocomics-and-comicscom-to-combine-forces.html.
* Added the ability to specify both Regex and Start/EndRegex in a
comic definition. When this happens, Regex is only searched for

2011-05-19 Diego Zamboni <diego@zzamboni.org>
* Fixed a bunch of modules for changes in their corresponding
pages.
* Added LinkRelImageSrc attribut for comic definitions. If
defined with a non-zero value, it will automatically
fetch the image URL from the first <link rel="image_src">
element found on the page. This element is increasingly
used because it is used by Facebook and other sites to
know which image to show when a URL is shared or posted.
2010-10-26 Diego Zamboni <diego@zzamboni.org>
* modules/oatmeal.pl: Support comics both from the blog and from

matching. By default the standard META REFRESH redirection is
supported. The redirection parameters can be specified in the
comic snippets using the new RedirectURLMatch,
RedirectURLCapture, RedirectURLPrepend and RedirectURLAppend
parameters.
* grabcartoons.pl: Added new MultipleMatches parameter, which
allows capturing multiple lines in the page using regular
expressions.
2010-10-01 Diego Zamboni <diego@zzamboni.org>
* modules/extraordinary.pl: Added module for Extra Ordinary
(http://exocomics.com/)
* grabcartoons.pl (fetch_url): Added code to follow META refresh
tags automatically (this was needed to make the new
"extraordinary" module simpler).
2010-08-19 Diego Zamboni <diego@zzamboni.org>
* Version 2.7
* modules/20templates.pl: Added templates for arcamax.com and
comicskingdom.com, thanks to Tony Cratz for the suggestions.
* grabcartoons.pl: It is now possible to request all the comics
from a given template by using template:* or template: as the
comic ID. This can also be passed to --list or --htmllist to
produce the list of comics from that template.
* grabcartoons.pl: Standardized the format of the comics list for
templates, and unified into the base code the finding and
validation of a comic's tag when using a template.
2010-08-13 Diego Zamboni <diego@zzamboni.org>
* Version 2.6
* modules/20templates.pl: Removed comics.com_big module, renames
comics.com_small to comics.com, since two sizes are no longer
available on comics.com.
* modules/savage_chickens.pl: Fixed Savage Chickens module, was
fetching unwanted content from the page.
2010-08-13 Diego Zamboni <diego@zzamboni.org>
* Version 2.5
* grabcartoons.pl (fetch_url): Added proper setting of the
$USEAGENT string when using LWP::UserAgent to fetch pages.
* modules/fifth_wave.pl: Removed module for The Fifth Wave, which
is no longer available at the gocomics.com site. At
http://www.the5thwave.com/ it seems to be only an archive of
cartoons, without new updates.
2010-02-06 Benjamin Kuperman <kuperman@users.sourceforge.net>
* modules/nedroid.pl: Added new module.
2010-01-11 Benjamin Kuperman <kuperman@users.sourceforge.net>
* modules/unshelved.pl: Added new module.
2009-12-04 Benjamin Kuperman <kuperman@users.sourceforge.net>
* modules/rose_is_rose.pl: switched to small format, and changed the
small template.
* modules/achewood.pl: Attempted a fix for changing URL. Problem is
that sometimes the URL is relative and other times it is absolute.
Current change has been working for over a week.
* modules/little_gamers.pl: Updated to new hosting site.
2009-09-11 Benjamin Kuperman <kuperman@users.sourceforge.net>
* modules/pictures_for_sad_children.pl: Added new module.
2009-08-31 Benjamin Kuperman <kuperman@users.sourceforge.net>

(not a repeat of previous change)
2009-06-30 Benjamin Kuperman <kuperman@users.sourceforge.net>
* modules/diesel_sweeties.pl: Updated for a new image URL format.
2009-06-05 Diego Zamboni <diego@zzamboni.org>
* Makefile: Improved test target by allowing to specify
comics to test and output file. By default tests all modules and
outputs to "all.html". If the C variable is specified, it is used
both as the comic name and the output file. The output file can be
specified explicitely using OUT. Set "V=" (empty string) to disable
verbose mode in the test target.
* modules/20templates.pl: Added _Template_Init to the
comics.com_{small,big} templates. The function gets the list of
existing comics from the web site, and stores it locally. This makes
it possible for _Template_Code (also modified) to check if the comic
exists, and to get the proper title for each comic, without having
to rely on generic name-transformation rules to get its "short
name".
* grabcartoons.pl: Added handling of the _Template_Init
function. If this key exists in the hash that defines a template, it
will be executed only once per run (i.e. if multiple comics from the
same template are requested, it will be executed only once at the
beginning). This is meant to give the template the opportunity to
perform some one-time initialization. The function is called with
the template's hash as an argument, so it can store additional
information there for further use.
* grabcartoons.pl: If errors occur, print them at the
moment they occur, but also repeat them at the end (useful when
using the -v flag)
2009-05-30 Diego Zamboni <diego@zzamboni.org>
* Makefile: Added ability to specify the output filename for the
test target, using the OUT variable. Defaults to t.html as before.
Added default comic selection (-a) to test target.
* modules/toothpastefordinner.pl: Fixed for change in
the webpage.
* modules/pVp.pl: Fixed for change in web page, and
added TitleRegex.
* modules/herman.pl: Removed NoShowTitle, since the
title is no longer shown in the panel.
* modules/goblins.pl: Fixed missing global replace to
properly display all parts of the comic.
* modules/eightbit.pl: Fixed for changes in the web site.
* grabcartoons.pl: Cleaned up error output.
2009-02-14 Benjamin Kuperman <kuperman@users.sourceforge.net>
* modules/20templates.pl: Updated to work with new gocomics layout.
this change is a bit of a hack, but uses info they have labelled as
"image file path for sharing sites to pick up".
* modules/wallyandosborne.pl: Updated
2009-01-06 Benjamin Kuperman <kuperman@users.sourceforge.net>
* modules/irregular.pl: Updated to work with current page, however
more changes are expected in the near future.

number to footer.
2008-12-05 Diego Zamboni <zamboni@users.sourceforge.net>
* grabcartoons.pl: Fixed normalization bug that would result in
possible duplicate comics when using --random.
2008-12-05 Diego Zamboni <zamboni@users.sourceforge.net>
* grabcartoons/grabcartoons.pl: Added option to request random
comics to be selected. The option takes a numeric argument: --random
n, will choose n comics at random (without repetition) and fetch
them. If any other comics are explicitely requested, the random ones
will be output after them (and will not include any of the
explicitely-requested ones).
* grabcartoons/modules/goblins.pl,
grabcartoons/modules/schlock_mercenary.pl: Modified modules that use
SubstOnRegexResult for the new syntax (array of arrays)
* grabcartoons/modules/savage_chickens.pl: Added module for
http://savagechickens.com.
* grabcartoons/README, grabcartoons/grabcartoons.pl: Modified

replacements to be done in sequence.

template.

* grabcartoons/grabcartoons.pl: Added ~/.grabcartoons/modules/ to
the list of module directories, for consistency. I left
~/.grabcartoons/ for backward compatibility.
2008-12-04 Diego Zamboni <zamboni@users.sourceforge.net>
* grabcartoons/grabcartoons.pl: Added ability to specify
template-based comics without the need for a pre-written module,
using the form "template:comic title" as the specification of the
comic.
2008-12-04 Diego Zamboni <zamboni@users.sourceforge.net>
* Added --templates option, to produce a list of existing templates.
Also added human-readable descriptions to the template definitions,
which are used by the --templates option.

2008-12-03 Diego M. Zamboni <zamboni@users.sourceforge.net>

* Modified all the gocomics.com modules to use the new template.
* modules/schlock_mercenary.pl: Modified to make use of
Start/EndRegex.
* grabcartoons.pl (get_comic): Added an optional third element to
SubstOnRegexResult that indicates whether a global
search-and-replace (/g) should be done. By default a single
search-and-replace is performed.
2008-12-02 Diego M. Zamboni <zamboni@users.sourceforge.net>
* grabcartoons.pl: Added templates! Now common sites
(e.g. comics.com) can be defined as a template, and comics from
those sites can be easily added simply by specifying their name
and the template. See modules/20templates.pl for the existing
templates.
* grabcartoons.pl (get_comic): Added new StartRegex and EndRegex
attributes, to allow capturing a region of lines. Also added the
InclusiveCapture attribute to define whether the first/last lines
of the region should be included in the capture.

modules/offthemark.pl, modules/rose_is_rose.pl, modules/pearls.pl:

domain.

* Version 1.6
* modules/bizarro.pl (get_url_bizarro): Fixed this module to get
the comic from its new location at
http://www.kingfeatures.com/features/comics/bizarro/about.htm.
It seems that the new site does some referrer checking, so that
the image grabcartoons gets is a "image not available"
message. Maybe I will remove this module in a future version.
2002-08-21 Benjamin Kuperman <kuperman@users.sourceforge.net>
* modules/little_gamers.pl (get_url_little_gamers): Corrected
this module to work with the PHP based system they are now

option bundling (for example, "-va" instead of "-v -a").
Changed -V to be an alias for --version and -v to be an alias for
--verbose (it was the other way around) because it seems to me
that --verbose is a more frequently-used option.
2002-11-19 Diego Zamboni <zamboni@users.sourceforge.net>

* LICENSE: Added file.
* grabcartoons.pl (vmsg): Added a --verbose option to print

and extract the comic URL from it, instead of using a fixed format

invalid URL).

the whole page even though the comic URL is fixed.

2002-08-28 Diego Zamboni <zamboni@users.sourceforge.net>
* grabcartoons.pl: Fixed bug in checking $GET_METHOD, which
resulted in it having value of 0.

most short options, because GetOptions automatically handles
abbreviations; modified code layout a little bit)
Added -w, fixed the remaining warnings.
2002-08-21 Benjamin Kuperman <kuperman@users.sourceforge.net>
* modules/achewood.pl modules/helen.pl modules/goats.pl
modules/diesel_sweeties.pl: remove double '/' in image URLs
and be sure that there is a '/' at the end of a website URL
that does not list a specific page.
2002-08-21 Diego Zamboni <zamboni@users.sourceforge.net>
* Version 1.2
* modules/00grabcartoons_output.pl (print_header): Removed the
timestamp from the page <title>, leaving it only on the <h1> at
the top.
* modules/sinfest.pl (get_url_sinfest): Fixed a double slash in
the image URL that was preventing it from getting fetched
correctly.
2002-08-19 Diego Zamboni <zamboni@users.sourceforge.net>
* modules/00grabcartoons_output.pl (print_footer): Removed
"automatically" from the footer.
* grabcartoons.pl: Expanded the list of module directories to
include fully-resolved (without symlinks) locations. This should
make it OK to link to the grabcartoons binary from somewhere
else. Also added code to eliminate duplicates from the list of
directories.
* Added --version option, rearranged option-handling code, and
modified the help text a little bit. Renamed --html option to
--htmllist, to have a more descriptive name.

2002-08-16 Diego Zamboni <zamboni@users.sourceforge.net>
* modules/00grabcartoons_output.pl: Moved print_* subroutines from
the main program to modules/00grabcartoons_output.pl. This way
it's easier to customize the output of the program.
* Makefile (install): Added install target, local CERIAS targets.
* grabcartoons.pl (fetch_url): Added quotes around the URL when
using an external command.
* (coolcatstudio.pl): Removed, the comic doesn't seem to be

(gucomics.pl): Removed, the comic doesn't seem to be online
anymore.

three subroutines to make it easier to write new
modules. fetch_url($url) grabs a URL and stores it in a local
array, and get_line() gets one line at a time. get_fullpage
returns the complete page as a single string.
Now it also uses LWP::UserAgent if available, instead of an
external command.
* modules/*: Modified all the existing modules to use fetch_url
and get_line instead of running wget directly.

2001-05-31 Diego Zamboni <zamboni@cerias.purdue.edu>
* modules/foxtrot.pl (get_url_foxtrot): foxtrot.com closed down,
so I updated the module to get the comic from ucomics.com
